Cuba is an amAzing place. We had saved up for nearly 2 years for our holiday and we were very excited. On arrival, which we were very tried, we were allocated our room. On entering the room my heart sank. The room smelt but I proceeded to the balcony to look at my view I had been so looking forward...

Couldn't have picked a better location and hotel for our honeymoon with the kids. The staff, entertainment, facilities and restaurants we're all awesome. It was luxurious, we felt thoroughly spoilt and everything is all-inclusive apart from the spa. We would love to return, better start saving! Iberostar Hotels are definitely worth visiting!

If you are looking to spend all your time in the hotel, especially with kids / teens, you might find a week to be more than enough, given the limited restaurants and organized activities / entertainment / equipment. Main pool is fine, gym is fine, spa is fine, buffets are fine, service is fine, number of chairs is fine, rooms...

If I had to rate this hotel by its wonderful staff then this would be a 5 star review. However the whole experience has to be included and some aspects of our holiday were not up to 5 star standards. We were given an envelope at check in which we thought would have information about the hotel but it only...

Beautiful hotel and surroundings. We stayed for 2 nights. The extra bed was very hard and we missed information about almost everything. We ate at the buffet during all meals because we couldn't book dinners at the hotel restaurants - because it was full and we didn't get any information. The buffet was crowded and the food was the same...

We spent a week with our 12 year old and loved every single moment. The resort is the perfect size. Large enough to never feel like people are on top of each other, but small enough to let our 12 year old run around without worry. There are plenty of lounges by the pool and at the beach so there...

For Cuba, this hotel deserves its 5 star rating. Good food, fun entertainment and the hotel is very well maintained. We also visited Havana on this trip and I fully recommend the private tour in a classic '50s car

This resort offered everything I could ever want from a Vacation. I (48), traveled with my father (81) and his girlfriend (79). I stayed solo in my own room and I always felt safe. The...
